Resolution number: 
7
May 2002
Whereas: 
  1. There is in Zimbabwe a large number of extra-judicial executions, forced disappearances and cases of systematic sexual violence reported by Amnesty International, constituting a situation of massive, flagrant and systematic human rights abuses in international law;
  2. There is a strong concern with the abuse of the "no credible basis" finding in Zimbabwean refugee hearings;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR:

  1. Call upon the government of Canada to maintain its moratorium on removals to Zimbabwe as we have recommended;
  2. Call for an independent study, with input from the CCR, on the abuse of no credible basis findings in Zimbabwean refugee claims.
Working Group:
